Just yesterday a friend called asking for some insight on a pink and brown wedding. I think that brides, although they like the color combination, feel their options are limited to finding the brown for their wedding. Staying within their color, brides definitely shouldn't be afraid to mix colors meaning adding a darker or lighter shade for some depth.....
Dresses: Whatever your main color is, be it pink or brown add a sash in the alternate color. If doing plain colored dresses is your preference believe it or not there are flowers which will come in a dark, almost brown color (and not the dead ones!) Be sure to check with your florist to see what is available. For another touch of color, make it a hand tied bouquet with a wide pink and brown ribbon.
Florals: If you're using a pastel pink, add a darker pink for that extra splash. There is a shade of calla lily you can get that does have a brownish tint to it, as well as a Hydrangea. Again, talk to your florist for more information, but you do always have the option of having small pink and brown bouquets at each table.. Although it's your wedding, trust their professional training to guide you through.
Linens: Your table linens are an easy way to add a touch of color to your wedding reception. Choosing a brown table cloth with a light pink runner is a beautiful choice, and will really set the romantic glow at your table. For centerpieces, if you want to go away from the norm try cherry blossoms! An absolutely beautiful statement, the brown branch along with the small delicate pinkish flowers make a simple yet classy centerpiece for the tables at your reception. Another option is to stick taller branches in a vase with water, or you can get some shorter vases and cherry blossom branches and submerge them completely in the water for a shorter centerpiece, whichever is your preference but both are absolutely beautiful.
